I didn't get to watch the entire debate, but I enjoyed the parts I did get to see. I thought Baumgartner would never stop his "quit telling people I'm not from Spokane" whining. Thumbs down to both candidates for being against gay marriage, but more so to Baumgartner for saying he's not running for office on any social issues. If you're elected you still have to deal with them.
Marr had his facts and figures at the ready and it showed. It was funny to hear him describe the problems with our state's tax system and what needs to be done to fix it and Baumgartner saying how Marr was such a status quo tax-and-spend liberal. Baumgartner showed off his labeling skills which seems to be just about all he's got going for him. I don't agree with Marr on everything, but he's proven he's willing to work with people and get things done.
